Submission – Not Only for Marriage

Q.   This Submission thing confuses me and, in Marriage, even angers me. As a wife I always seem to get the rough end of the bargain! Help! What does God want of me? A.   Perhaps you should start by asking what God wants for you! The Bible tells that He wants only good for you and Jer 29:11 says His plans for you will give you hope and a great future in Him. It is not…

Spirituality in Marriage

Q.    As newlyweds (for 3 years) we don’t always ‘get it together’ but we are reasonably OK. We both feel that there’s more for us than we’re enjoying. How can we grow spiritually as a couple? A.    Right at the start, one vital piece of advice is that your best spiritual growth is assured only if you are in active and faithful fellowship in an Assembly of the Lord’s…

Portrait of a Successful Marriage

Q.    What does a healthy, successful Marriage look like? A.   In Marriage, the parties are unique, and their relationship with the Lord is unique. It’s therefore impossible to give a universal picture of a good Marriage. Basic principles for Marriage are found in God’s Word and it really goes without saying that a couple should live in the Word to have God’s daily input…

Newlyweds and Church

Q. Does Marriage release newlyweds from activities in the Body of Christ? A. Your question surprises me since quite the opposite should result from a young, godly couple being married. Once, long ago, someone suggested, in jest, that a couple should have a year off to settle into married life. They took their thought from Deut 24:5, When a man hath taken a new wife, he…

My Husband Works Too Hard in the Church

Q. My husband is very involved in Lord’s work and I’m feeling left out and don’t know how to cope. A. Most men in the Lord’s work have to discover how to overcome that very real downfall of neglecting their wife, and even the children. First and foremost, get rid of the negatives in your own heart – anger, resentment or bitterness. Second, don’t nag your husband; you both…

Q.    We squabble over money and this is fast becoming a problem in our Marriage. What can we do? We really want to serve the Lord. A.   The Lord is committed to you, and also to leading you out of your quandary. Thus your first step is listening to Him.

Moneyand Marriage

Q.    Money is a problem in my marriage? How can I stop it? A.    No matter how much money or goods we have, we could always use a little more; we’re never quite satisfied with what we have. When will it ever be enough? According to Hebrews 13:5, 6, the answer is never – because money and goods are only temporary. To pin our hopes for happiness on material…

Marriage and Serving the Lord

Q.   Does Marriage excuse couples from activities in the Body of Christ? A.   Forgive me for not understanding your question; please feel free to address the issue if I don’t satisfy your question. It is sadly true that when some marry, they become so wrapped up in their new experience that they tend to fade out of the “Church Scene.’ This amazes me since, as a young…

Marriage – The Wrong Partner?

Q. What must I do if I feel I have the wrong Marriage Partner? A. Get to your local oversight as quickly as possible. Your very thought reveals a headlong direction into disaster. In any event, our Q&A Forum is far too small to explore the implications of your question. Suffice it to say that Marriage is a lot more important than many people think with their ‘hop in…
